Former Diplomats and Their Dope on Iran

William Luers, Thomas R. Pickering, and Jim Walsh

...recommend a renewed diplomatic path for achieving mutually acceptable limits on Iran’s nuclear program—limits that provide reliable insurance that Tehran will not acquire nuclear weapons. We do not underestimate the risks, internationally or domestically, of taking this approach. Yet we are convinced that the current trajectory presents higher risks and possibly catastrophic costs.
What about Israel in this configuration?

They write:

Contrary to some opinions, intelligence estimates from the US, Israel, and other nations conclude that Iran’s Supreme Leader has not made the decision to build a bomb

And also

Iran’s preoccupation with the Sunni conflict might reduce its concentration on Israel.

That's the extent of their strategic contemplation and runimations concerning Israel and Iran.

That's all?

Too bad.
